Rhinebeck.Sweater.

Cutaway_front_pieces_2

Wait, you didn’t know I was going to Rhinebeck?  I realized today that I think I managed to leave that little fact off of the blog.  I’m SO excited, I just haven’t really had time to be excited for long with busy times here. 

I bet you didn’t know I had a sweater on the needles to be finished in time for Rhinebeck either.  You are correct.  I am working to finish the Cutaway Cardigan for Rhinebeck that has been languishing in the bottom of my closet for 9 months.  I started the pieces last August and stopped working on it in January.  I was nervous about the finishing, so I just stuck it in the closet and forgot about it.  Last week, I remembered it and decided it was time for me to face the finishing (which included blocking it on my very highspeed blocking board, a beach towel).  I have been seaming (with a bit of re-seaming) since then.  I think I will actually be proud of the finishing on this garment.  I have tried it on along the way to see how the seams drape and I’ve not been afraid to tear it out when it looks bad.  Look for me in a Cutaway Cardigan at Rhinebeck if not before then because I’m on the last seam tonight!
